|I live in Maryland and have two large potted black eyed susans by my front door that are coming to the end of their flowering season.
Would they survive the winter in their pots?
I was thinking of possibly taking them out of their containers and permanently planting the two in my garden. Any advice on when to do this and how best to do it would be greatly appreciated.

|Thinking you would be better planting them in the garden, late summer early fall should work. They like moist, but well drained sites, and full sun, extricate them from the pot, break up the root ball (I usually just pull it apart with your hands) and water them in. You will have a better chance of them surviving in the ground than in the pots.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
